as president obama looked on from the pew the some conservatives in washington want to return to the bad old days of segregation or something. joining us is charles krauthammer. i don't want to put words in your mouth. i was down in caribbean and i kind of got the gist that you weren't that upset about this. as some people were. >> is that true? >> i'm afraid heads will have to roll in your research department. i was pretty rough on the pastor. i thought what he did was disgraceful. i think i called it libel. and it was actually quite an echo of what ted kennedy said when robert bork, remember when he was nominated within minutes kennedy was on the floor of the senate saying robert bork's america is in america where blacks can't be served at the counter. where women have back room abortions. and the pastor at this church essentially said the same thing. it's a racist country. racist, sexist, blames it on the religious right and it was a libel. it was a slander of the first order. the question was was obama somehow complicit in this because he didn't object before or afterwards my answer is w

debate on gun reform, president obama is looking for support outside of washington d.c. yesterday at a police academy not far from the site of last year's theater shooting in colorado, the president focused on universal background checks saying his goal is not to take firearms away from their owners. >> the opponents of some of these common sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what's being proposed and nothing to do with the facts. but feeds into the suspicion about government. if there are any folks who are out there right now who are gun owners and you've been hearing that someone has taken away your guns, get the facts. we're not proposing gun registration system. we're proposing background checks for criminals. >> one of the most fascinating parts of the speech was when he talked about michelle saying if i lived in a rural area and i lived on a farm, i would want a gun in my house. he was talking about this is not about keeping guns away from people. michelle was talking to the president. the president by extension understan
